Europeans to contest Kirin Cup
Monday, 02 February 2004
Serbia and Montenegro have agreed to take part in the Kirin Cup in Japan this summer.

Three games
Serbia and Montenegro will join the hosts and Slovakia in the tournament, which will be played between 9 and 13 July. Japan will take on Slovakia on 9 July, with the two European sides meeting two days later and the Serbo-Montenegrins facing the hosts on 13 July.

Olympic bid
This summer will therefore be the third time Serbia and Montenegro have participated in the competition. .
Hopefully these games will be good warm up and preperation games for our WC 2006 campaign, does anyone have anymore information on this tournament or any statistics from before ?


look at this,
"While in the Far East, they will also play a match against the Japanese Olympic side in preparation for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens"....... Were going to the 2004 Olympic Games ? :confused: :D :cool:

Well I guess that means a U21 friendly? :confused:

Our U21 team has a chance of getting us to Athens if they finish among the top 3 in the tournament.

The last time we were in the kirin cup was back in 2002, right before the WC, and it was in Russia, we finished 3rd, when we beat russia on PK, however we lost to ukraine in the semi's. Basically, we played bad if we had to beat russia in pk's and losing to ukraine, but then again dejo was the coach so put 2 and 2 together. This time, I think we may have a good shot to win it, if we get a good team together for it, and it can be a good indicator on how we will perform in WC qualifying under petko.
